Indie Wire: The Best Movie of the 21st Century: Why Critics Keep Voting for David Lynch’s ‘Mulholland Drive’

A fever dream of a movie set in Los Angeles, “Mulholland Drive” stars Laura Harring as young woman who becomes amnesic after a car wreck in the Hollywood hills and Naomi Watts as an aspiring actress who helps her search for clues to her life. Summarizing the plot of the film, however, is close to impossible due to the narrative twists that leave it open to interpretation as to what is a dream and what is reality.

“Like a lot of critics who adore the movie, none of us got it the first time,” said Los Angeles Times film critic Justin Chang, who managed the LAFCA poll in 2010 and ranked “Mulholland Drive” as the best film of the 21st century in the recent BBC poll. “Any person who says they did is lying.”

One aspect of the film that helps give it a timeless quality is the way it looks both forward and backward, serving as a kind of “poisoned valentine” to Hollywood, according to Chang. “It very lovingly recreates the grand old Hollywood of yesteryear and yet it’s a movie about the evils underlying the industry and particularly what it does to actresses and to women who dream of working in the business,” he said. “It’s about the allure and also the toxic underbelly of the dream factory.”

Stanley Donen's typically slick comedy thriller, ingeniously scripted by Peter Stone, is a mammoth audience teaser, with a small cast of characters, bursting with multiple identities, caught up in a complicated hunt for a fortune in gold coins seemingly secreted by Audrey Hepburn's murdered husband. Cary Grant imparts his ineffable charm, George Kennedy (with metal hand) provides comic brutality, while Hepburn is elegantly fraught. There are also smart Parisian settings and smart Mancini music. (Time Out)

The genius of "Blood Simple" is that everything that happens seems necessary. The movie's a blood-soaked nightmare in which greed and lust trap the characters in escalating horror. The plot twists in upon itself. Characters are found in situations of diabolical complexity. And yet it doesn't feel like the film is just piling it on. Step by inexorable step, logically, one damned thing leads to another. (Roger Ebertread more.)
